And to wrap things up, a little update on the adoption!
This was the announcement we sent out a few weeks ago:
Through much prayer and patience, God has continued to guide our path to bring our daughter into our home. Currently that path has brought us to work with a newly founded adoption foundation in our local area. One of our dear friends Shannon from our church plant has a heart for children in need of a permanent home and began an organization to pair children with a forever home. Across the United States there are about 400,000 children in the foster care system and of those over 100,000 are waiting for adoption. These 100,000 children have had their parental rights severed for a number of reasons but that action is permanent. They need a permanent home. We feel like God has brought us to this point/place/time with intent and so have begun the process of working with Shannon and her group to bring Selah home through the Dept of Health and Human Services. India is still a very large part of our heart but it would seem that at this moment God has placed this organization and these children in our life for a reason.
Eventually I will sit down and write out the entire story of how this turn of events came to be. It was undeniable that this was the path we are suppose to be on right now.
I hope y'all are enjoying this season.
I know it can be so full, so busy, and well….so stressful.
This year I'm saying "no" to all of that. We trimmed down decorations, declined extra social events,
and instead are pulling our kiddos close and remembering the sweetness of this season.
Love you guys!
Thank you for reading, for being a part of my family's life!
